OpenRA

OpenRA

OpenRA is a highly moddable RTS game engine for classic Westwood 2D games. In fact Red Alert, Command & Conquer and Dune 2000 are implemented purely as mods on it. Tools are provided that allow you to add new units, maps and tilesets even create your own mod.

The RA mod for OpenRA is a reimagining of Command & Conquer: Red Alert. It is not just a clone of the original but has improved and rebalanced gameplay. The UI is modernised for higher resolutions and better usabiltiy. It has fully working multiplayer support for both internet and local play (via direct connect). A single player campaign is currently being worked on.

The CNC mod for OpenRA is a reimagining of the original Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn game. As with Red Alert modern networking and rendering technology is used. Also new features are implemented such as snow terrain, neutral tech buildings and many glitches from the original have been fixed.

The D2k mod for OpenRA is a reimagining of Dune 2000. A remake of the remake so to speak. The mod tries to optimize balancing and gameplay. Currently in early stages of development, but already playable. The spice must flow!

Minimum system requirements: 

OpenGL 2.0 capable graphics card

Comments

Requirements too high

Very strict graphics requirements even though there is seemingly no effects that couldn't have been rendered during Red Alert's original release. Administrators and developers of the project could careless. I can not even run the game with my average modern 3d accelerated graphics card. Developer's have a "if you don't like it fix it yourself" response for every comment that is not in line with their personal interests.

Wrong Release Date

It says the release date is 2010 when it is 2011. I guess this messes with the order in which it will show up in searches?
